RTI partners with SoundMachine for commercial music service
Control and automation specialist RTI partners with SoundMachine, the music subscription service for businesses, to provide integrators installing the RTI Music streaming audio system with recurring monthly revenue options with the music service cloud-based fully licensed from SoundMachine.
Partnership enables RTI resellers to offer and monetize fully licensed music services (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, RE-SOUND and Global Music Rights) in restaurants, bars, hotels and other applications commercial.
“Music is an integral part of the retail atmosphere, engaging customers in a meaningful way and encouraging repeat visits,” said Neal Ellsworth, director of product management at RTI. “RTI Music’s integration with SoundMachine makes it easy for integrators to create memorable customer experiences with a cloud-based licensed music service and then participate in the ongoing revenue stream.”
SoundMachine simplifies the use of fully licensed music in hospitality and commercial environments.
There are two tiers of service: the business plan offers 100+ playlists with a range of style settings, pre-programmed personalized ads, multiple sources within one location, multiple locations with one central account and one annual prepaid service with discounts and without contract.
The Business Premium plan offers 500+ playlists and allows importing playlists from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc. RTI dealers will earn 10% of service subscription fees, generating recurring revenue for their businesses.
RTI Music enables seamless music streaming directly from the control and automation system environment, combining music streaming control with TV, lighting and blinds, climate and security. There’s no need to leave the control app to search for music or access a playlist. The result is that staff can focus on the customer experience, not the technology. With multiple simultaneous streams, RTI Music enables different areas of the business to stream unique playlists, with all music fully licensed through SoundMachine.
“Ultimately, our goal is to create the best possible user experience for businesses and their customers,” said Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine. “The integration of RTI Control does precisely that while providing RTI dealers with a new stream of recurring revenue.”
